Our focus is on developing character, instilling confidence and a love of learning whist teaching the importance of kindness, manners and respect.

We are responsible. We are resilient. We are ready to learn. We are Roundhay.”
Arranging a visit to Roundhay School
Roundhay School is in the very fortunate position to receive an excellent number of applications for advertised roles. For this reason, and under normal circumstances, we do not usually arrange school visits for potential candidates.
We prefer to protect the workload of our staff and allow them to focus on their role.
Instead, we prefer to include a full tour of the working school as part of the interview process. This allows candidates shortlisted for interview to experience a full and thorough tour of the working school. It also provides an opportunity to meet the pupils and interact with members of Department and wider school, including the Leadership Team.
